Posted by fidest press agency su venerdì, 31 Mag 2019

Results from the world’s first randomized control study to examine digital therapeutic smoking cessation programs were presented on May 20th at the American Thoracic Society International Conference. The findings demonstrate that CureApp’s nicotine dependence treatment app resulted in an improvement in continuous abstinence rate (CAR) compared to a control group over multiple time points.Kohta Satake, M.D., M.B.A., M.P.H., Chief Executive Officer of CureApp, Inc. and a respiratory specialized physician says, “Healthcare professionals are challenged to help patients fight against the psychological nicotine addiction alone between clinical visits. CureApp’s digital therapeutics approach is a breakthrough in bridging the gap between clinical visits providing daily support to the patients. We are striving for regulatory and reimbursement approval to deliver the solution as soon as possible.”The CureApp solution delivers information and educational material through an app that is conveniently on the patient’s smartphone, together with a Carbon Monoxide (CO) monitor for tracking their progress, and a web interface for physicians. CureApp’s system is the first such program to undergo the rigorous testing of Phase III clinical trials. With this confirmation of its efficacy, CureApp’s goal is to use this data to obtain regulatory approval and health insurance coverage in Japan and to expand globally in multiple countries including the United States.
